New releases out today: Fontaines D.C., Pusha T, Real Lies, Spiritualized, J Smith & more


Here’s a rundown of new releases on DSPs and physical releases in record shops this week.

Fontaines D.C. – Skinty Fia

The third album from the band is another switch of styles into murkier territories, with living distance from Ireland prompting treatises on what it means to be Irish living abroad.

Pusha T – It’s Almost Dry

Fourth album from King Push was produced by Kanye West and Pharrell Williams and features Jay-Z, Kid Cudi, Labrinth, No Malice, Lil Uzi Vert, Don Toliver and Nigo.

Real Lies – Lad Ash

The long-awaited second album from English poetic purveyors of late-night insights and euphoric music.

Spiritualized – Everything was Beautiful

J Spaceman’s ninth album is said to recall the strains of 1997 career high Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space

Hatchie – Giving the World Away

Second album from the UK pop artist Harriette Pilbeam.

Labrinth – Euphoria Season 2 Official Score

Labrinth’s excellent score for the excellent show Euphoria.

J Smith – Three Dots EP

A new EP from James Smith featuring four songs that didn’t fit on the excellent debut album sonically or lyrically. I previously featured ‘Skipping Stones’ and am loving ‘Into The Blue’ featuring Kez.

Síomha – Infinite Space

Irish artist’s debut album is noted as “cosmic, folk-informed, jazz-tinged, post-pop.”

It was recorded in Ann Arbor, Michigan by Tyler Duncan and features Joe Dart (Vulfpeck), Louis Cato (Bobby McFerrin/ Snarky Puppy),Michael Shimmin (the olllam), Martin Atkinson Borrul (TOUCAN) and violinist Jeremy Kittel (Bela Fleck/ Chris Thile).

S Carey – Break Me Open

Bon Iver’s drummer picks up the pieces after a failed marriage.
